Youth! - Poem by Gordon David

We could stay here and meditate
Should not be feeling so irate
Stats and lies only agitate
No more fools to impersonate
The YOUTH would not be in a state
If we taught them love instead of hate
Give them room let them see their fate
Show them how they can demonstrate
Teach them not to discriminate
Then let them grow and gravitate
We’re only here to mediate
There is still time so don’t be late

Is knife-crime linked to poverty?
Where did we lose our sanity?
Why should we keep our dignity?
Do we want more equality?
Can we hide our animosity?
What happened to the honesty?
Is Them and Us reality?
How about a nice cup of tea?

The YOUTH will need more unity
Add a dropp of hilarity
Before they find their destiny
And head off to Infinity
